<< iron. . . .Though considerably faster, the Mustangs and Camaros were no
for the A4q; we ate them alive in the twisted sections. It was a picture of
pure frustration as we passed these guys in the corners only to have them
catch up on the straights and then drop back in the corners again.
Essentially, we surprised everyone with the car's skills, and the concept of
Audi's 'unfair advantage' became crystal clear." (European Car, Nov '96).
This was in a stock 172 hp A4q except for +1 wheels and tires. Just someone
Great car, mustangs and camaro comparo is kinda funny, though some details on
the GTI might be in order, and +1 is stacking the deck some, do it for one,
do it for all, camaro with 18's might change the score some.... as well as a
comparo to the M3.... I find it very interesting that the european racing
venue places the A4q and the M3 as the two top competitors to each other (and
the war of words is just as heavy as the protests), yet I have yet to find an
article comparing the two in street trim, here or across the pond.... EC of
all folks, I would think, would give this a go.....
